Lecture: 2017 Maps of Meaning 01: Context and Background

In this lecture, I discuss the context within which the theory I am delineating through this course emerge: that of the cold war. What is belief? Why is it so important to people? Why will they fight to protect it? I propose that belief unites a culture's expectations and desires with the actions of its people, and that the match between those two allows for cooperative action and maintains emotional stability. I suggest, further, that culture has a deep narrative structure, presenting the world as a forum for action, with characters representing the individual, the known, and the unknown -- or the individual, culture and nature -- or the individual, order and chaos. --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- Direct Support: Merchandise: --- BOOKS --- 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: --- LINKS --- Website: 12 Rules for Life Tour: Blog: Podcast: Reading List: Twitter: Instagram: Facebook: --- PRODUCTS --- Personality Course: Self Authoring Suite: Understand Myself personality test: Merchandise: 2:31:27 2023-06-25T11:53:58Z
